  • Task Force Lifeliner soldiers prepare to play cards during a fall festival celebration hosted by the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 101st Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), Nov. 17, 2013, at Bagram Air Field, Parwan province, Afghanistan. Despite being away from families and friends, Task Force Lifeliner soldiers take a moment out of their deployment to celebrate the arrival of fall with an afternoon festival in Afghanistan. “This is a tremendous opportunity to get people to break away from the office…for the most part just have fun and a great opportunity to listen to some music, have a cookout and just have some camaraderie and build the team,” excitedly exclaimed Lt. Col. Eric J. Sloughfy, deputy commander for the Task Force Lifeliner and a native of Clarksville, Tenn. The fall festival had door prizes, cookout and refreshments, and music by the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Rock Band. The festival also included the Sustainer Superlative awards for the categories of "Old and Crusty," "Shredding-it," "Drill Sergeant," "Diva" and more. These awards were given to those nominated and who met the criteria of each type of award. In addition the soldiers had the chance to play dominoes and cards games. It is obvious from the smiling faces of the soldiers everyone was having a good time and needed this time to reset. “At the end of the day we’re out here and we’re deployed, we don’t have our family members with us. This is as close as you can get,” said Staff Sgt. Anre P. Hall, a native of New York, N.Y., and a casualty operations noncommissioned officer in charge with Task Force Lifeliner. “It’s a close-knit team and I wouldn’t have it any other way.” (U.S. Army photos by Sgt.
